"...To make a prairie, it takes a bee.
A bee and reverie.
The reverie alone will do if bees are few."
Prescribed Burning Season is Almost Here
Even though snow is still on the ground, prescribed burning season is just around the corner (typically people burn their prairies in April or very-early May). So, this is the time to start planning for your spring burn.
Detailed information about organizing your spring burn can be found below. Open the Burn Packet and read it thoroughly. It includes directions for organizing your burn. It is very important for all landowners who are using Prairie Smoke equipment and/or volunteers to:
- Fill out the Liability Waiver and return it before your scheduled burn
- Prepare your Fire Breaks
- Complete a Burn Plan (which needs to be signed by the burn boss and submitted to the Prairie Smoke Chapter before your scheduled burn).
- Set a Date and Reserve the Equipment
- Obtain your Burn Permit
- Contact Volunteers as soon as possible (volunteer list on our website is not currently working, so I've attached the list to this email)
VOLUNTEERS: Please check the information that is included on the list. If correct, you do not have to do anything. If incorrect, please send corrections to Dave Edwards. Anyone wishing to be added to the list can send me the necessary information and he'll add you to the list.
The directions for doing all of these things can be found in the Prairie Smoke Burn Packet. Please read it thoroughly. Send any questions to: email@example.com
